I better run because today is early release day for Rockwall ISD and I'm keeping a bunch of girls for a few of my friends. It's going to be a little nutty around her this afternoon. At least MC will be at school until 2:30.

So far I have followed through. Wish I could stay as committed to eating well and working out.
Each night this week Scott and I have ended the night with a little cocktail consisting of Tito's vodka and Simply Limeade. Refreshing and takes just enough of the edge off so that you're willing to start the craziness all over the next day. See we're coming down to the wire on Operation Remodel the Flooded House. The painters have been dragging some serious ass with the paint piece. And if it wasn't for my sweet animal loving husband who decided to go check on our cats and make sure the fumes didn't kill them we might not have the little friends anymore. The painters taped plastic sheets ( I have no idea what the technical name is...nor do I care) where all the doors go and those bleep bleeps taped the cats shut in there. I kid you not. Griff just thought he had it bad at doggy boot camp. We're in the home stretch now and I have no more clean clothes or panties because I got clothes for everybody, but Old' Mom here.
And Mason eats like crap these days.
He is usually a really good eater, but lately there's all kinds of bargaining going on.
And i'm soooo over it.
Drew Beans is officially crawling. It so cute.
It's cute because he's not very fast yet.
I'm sure the cuteness will ware off soon...like when he's crawling up my leg while I try to fix dinner in my new fancy to me kitchen!
For the most part everything is great and these are great problems to have and I'm so thankful...
Blah blah blah
We're just ready to be home...our home.

Disclaimers: The spanking was on his bottom and he really wasn't even fazed by it. The kid is tough as nails y'all. I realize spanking isn't for everyone, but here in the CoccaNuts house it's put into action every once in a while.

We saw Griffin on Monday and he seems to be doing really well. He was super excited to see us and really over the moon when he saw Mason. He still has about four weeks left in his BOW WOW BOOT CAMP.
A couple of days ago I received news that one of my good friends from grade school passed away. She was thirty years old, married with three adorable boys. Her death was very sudden and unexpected. One of her boys will start kinder in a few short weeks without his mommy and one of her boys is so young that he won't even remember her. My heart aches for her husband and sweet boys.

I have to get Mase packed up because he's going to weekend with his Nonny and Papa's for the weekend.
The Mr. And I are celebrating seven years as Mr. and Mrs. CoccaNuts on Saturday. We'll also be celebrating our first outing with just the two of us since Drew was born. He's 8 months old y'all! To say we are looking forward to it would be quiet the understatement, but I would be lying if I said I wasn't nervous about leaving Drew for the first time. I'll put him to bed before the sitter gets here, but still I'm nervous. Our anniversary present to each othe is this new bed.
Wednesday we met my sister and her boys for a little fun at a train park. The big boys ran off some energy and the babies sat in the shade thinking about the day that they'll be able to toddle after them. It was a fu day and I love to watch Mase and Landon play. Afterwards went into Victoria's Secret because I need a few new pairs of undies. The boys were running around that place like wild men. Mason told me sister that he thought this store was precious! He also told me that girls don't work and I told him that someday you're going to make a girl very happy!
I have so much more to say, but I have to get a few things accomplished before Drew's nap and Mason is begging me to play bingo with him and let's face it one day it will be me begging him to play.

There's a dumpster in my drive way. Hope my neighbors aren't too pissed about that.
This is what my down stairs currently looks like. The kitty cats are a little freaked out. Poor things.
#2 eating his breakfast with a few!

Mason: Dad, I have some good news and some bad news. Which do you want first?
Scott: good news.
Mason: the good news is that mommy's home and the bad news is that I have a boo boo right here.
Such a funny little shortie.
I really do have good news...the remodel on our house is starting tomorrow!!!! They'll begin ripping up the old hardwood floors tomorrow. I think that'll take a couple of days. In the meantime we'll be look at flooring and cabinet samples. I think we've settled on a 5 inch hand scraped for the new floors, but I have no idea on the cabinets. We hired a decorator to help us with some of theses decisions.
Mason had his swim evaluation yesterday and really enjoyed it. I've heard nothing put great things about the Rockwall Aquatic Center and got to experience it first hand. Their customer service is impeccable. Mason will be going every Monday, Tuesday and Thursday.
I just got off of the phone with the dog trainer that has Griffin. He says he's doing really well, but I doubt he would tell if he wasn't. He did say that Griff is quite the barker and that he would be fixing that for sure. Thank you Jesus...that's worth the money right there. I'm probably having the hardest time with him being gone because he's been attached to my hip since the day we brought him home. Can't wait to go visit him in a couple weeks!!!

And Drew likes to stick his hand in his mouth after bite of his oatmeal. I think it may have something to with another round of teething. I gave him some orajel teething tablets this morning and he seemed much less grumpy.
Mason has his swim evaluation at the Rockwall Aquatic Center this afternoon and then he will start swim lesson 2-3 times a week. There's been several children drown this summer in the DFW area so Scott and I decide not to mess around and get him enrolled. He's not a fan of going under water so it should be interesting. Here's a few pictures of the place we're staying for the next few months. I really nice and I kind of feel like I'm on a little mini vacay.

We just celebrated Mason's fourth birthday this past Saturday. We had such a great time with a ton of our friends. Hard to believe my first born is four...time marches on. The Mr. and I just recently decided to put Mason in preschool three days a week versus his two days that he's been doing the last couple of years. This makes me sad for a few reasons I love having him home and he's growing up too fast as it is, but also because most of my friends are on a two days a week schedule so there will be less time for us to get together. I have to put my selfishness aside because he's pumped about his additional day at school.
Drew Beans is a week or so away from 8 months. Ack...we're getting much closer to being a year old. We are still nursing and plan on weaning around 12 months. He's very much attached to his paci which is still kind of strange because Mason wanted nothing to do with a pacifier. I'm a slave to the damn pacifier, but the damn thing has been such a lifesaver at times though. Moving on...he loves to eat, especially Tex Mex. Are we surprised??? Not so much...it's a staple at the CoccaNut house. Drew sits up, says dada and babbles, but that's about it. Not crawling, but that's really fine by me. ;)
I recently joined WeightWatchers online. I'm determined to loose this weight. Whoever said oh you can eat whatever you want because you breast feeding FREAKING LIED! My body is funny...I never gain much wait while pregnant and usually drop about 30 pounds right after giving birth, but about a month later I start packing on the pounds. It very well may be very difficult for me to get back to my happy size until I stopped nursing, but I'm really going to try!
That's all for now. Time to go run a ton of errands and get back to my little shorties!

The epidural was waiting on me when I got into the room. Once administered it was smooth sailing. It was about 1:00 in the morning and I was ready to sleep. We called my mom and told her it would be a while and we would call her in a bit when I was further along. We turned out all the lights and I drifted off to sleep...I wanted to rest before the pushing began. Before I new it they were back and I was dilated to and 8. Scott called my mom and told her she need to get here because I was progressing very quickly now. I'm not sure what time it is at this point, but my OB checked me and told me it was time to start pushing. My mom and grandma walked in right in time to see me start pushing. I think I pushed about 10 or 15 minutes at the most and you enter the world at 5:50 am on November 18th 2012. You immediately tested out those lungs of yours, started crying and peeing! All 7 pounds 7 ounces and 19 3/4 inches of you were healthy as can be. It was love at first sight part Deaux!
